Department for Culture Media and Sport
We work with local and regional government to maintain and improve the delivery of cultural and sporting services.
Local government is crucial in achieving our key cultural service delivery aims. It spends twice as much on providing cultural and sporting opportunities for communities as DCMS and the National Lottery combined.
We work closely with local authorities to help them maintain and improve delivery of cultural and sporting services and spread best practice.
The importance of culture, leisure and sport in addressing issues such as social inclusion, health and crime is becoming increasingly apparent.
